For the red carpet, the 28-year-old actress kept it cute and classy in a black velvet midi dress with white lace ruffles on her collar and sleeves. The frock is quite literally the definition of "business in the front, party in the back" since it features a back-baring cut-out! Yoo Mi completed the look with spunky purple platform heels.
